Klosjes oopsie

I have been busy sewing my klosjes blocks into strips and thought everything was going quite well. That is .... until I double checked and noticed there are two blocks turned the wrong way (see the bright orange stickies). Darn, but a good thing they got caught in time.

There are only 21 border blocks to make. Wow? When did that happen? I just kept making border blocks and started pinning them on my design wall. Now that was a nice surprise for me! :o)

So, this top is coming along very nicely. I have been toying with the borders. Should they have a strip of fabric between the center portion and the outside borders? Oh, decisions, decisions. I'll do a mock-up sometime soon and show you different versions and ask for your opinion.

Now, I'm off to fix those blocks and continue working on this top. Oh, it will be so nice to finally have this top finished.

Have a great day!

Oh Rose Marie, what a beauty this is even with the wrong turns. Makes me smile. Look forward to the mock-up's.

That will be so pretty! Personally I would put a narrow (say - one inch, no more) border between the centre blocks and the border, but would that throw the border maths out?

Eeeek! RoseMarie, boy I have missed way too many of your posts! This quilt is just beautiful! Even with the orange stickers. Love it and can't wait to see the borders.

It is really beautiful. I always like a narrow "stop" border after the central part, but that can throw out the sizes for the outside blocks so it can be a tricky decision. There, that was absolutely no help at all was it?
